(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) White House press secretary Karine Jean–Pierre shut down a media question regarding President Joe Biden’s Arkansas grandchild, Navy Biden, the Daily Wire reported.
On Tuesday, Jean–Pierre was asked about Hunter Biden’s 4-year-old daughter, whom he conceived with former stripper Lunden Roberts, after the president notably snubbed her while referring to his six other grandchildren when responding to a child’s question.
The question specifically brought up an ongoing child-support case, which Hunter has fought vigorously, drawing a rebuke from the presiding judge.
“I wanted to ask about the trial going on in Arkansas with Hunter Biden and the child support,” said Emily Goodwin, who covers U.S. politics for the Daily Mail.
“Are the president and first lady monitoring that?” Goodwin asked. “And how come they haven’t acknowledged the seventh grandchild?”
Jean-Pierre curtly responded: “I’m not going to speak to that from here,” before moving on to another reporter.
James Rosen, the chief White House correspondent for Newsmax, quickly followed up: “Why not?”
But Jean-Pierre ignored his question entirely.
Navy was confirmed to be Hunter’s daughter by a court-ordered paternity test. Nonetheless, neither Hunter nor Joe has acknowledged that Hunter fathered another Biden grandchild.
The president even listed his other six grandchildren at a recent White House “take your child to work day,” ignoring the seventh—Navy.
“The best part of it all, I have six grandchildren, and I’m crazy about them,” Biden said.
“I speak to them every single day,” he added. “Not a joke.”
Hunter made an appearance Monday in an Arkansas court room, being accused of refusing to comply with court orders regarding paternity payments.
Holly Meyer, the Independence County Circuit Court judge, also slammed Hunter for submitting heavily-redacted statements that concealed important financial information.
In addition to increased paternity payments, Roberts is also attempting to get Navy’s last name legally changed to “Biden.”
According to Roberts’s attorneys, the name is “now synonymous with being well educated, successful, financially acute, and politically powerful.”
The attorneys also noted that giving Navy the Biden name would make her “known to the world” as a “member of the prestigious Biden family.”
